That’s LEGO, not LEGOS…

I loved LEGO as a child. My children love LEGO. And it turns out I still love LEGO even if I couldn’t possibly afford some of the amazing sets that they bring out.

What I particularly like those is the imaginative and artistic creations that LEGO builders come up with and I like to showcase them here.

LEGO The Hobbit — The Company

It's been a while since I posted a good #LEGO build for people to enjoy and it's time to correct that with this impres­sive set of char­ac­ters from The Hobbit (Peter Jackson movie versions). The entire of Thorin Oakenshield's company is on display here and the scale used to build them allows for a lot of detail. Pâté-keetongu has … Read More… Share on Tumblrvar dd_offset_from_content = 40;var dd_top_offset_from_content = 20;var dd_override_start_anchor_id = "";var dd_override_top_offset = ""; jQuery(document).ready(function($) { window.setTimeout('loadPinterest_120154()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadTwitter_120154()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadReddit_120154()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadGoogle1_120154()',1000);window.setTimeout('loadTumblr_120154()',1000); }); func­tion loadPinterest_120154(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $.getScript('http://assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js'); }); } func­tion loadTwitter_120154(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-twitter-120154').remove();$.getScript('http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js'); }); } func­tion loadReddit_120154(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-reddit-120154').remove();$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_120154').attr('width','51');$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_120154').attr('height','69');$('.DD_REDDIT_AJAX_120154').attr('src','http://www.reddit.com/static/button/button2.html?width=51&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.eoghann.com%2Fgeekery%2Flego-geekery&title=LEGO&newwindow=1'); }); } func­tion loadGoogle1_120154(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-google1-120154').remove();$.getScript('https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js'); }); } func­tion loadTumblr_120154(){ jQuery(document).ready(function($) { $('.dd-pocket-120154').remove();$.getScript('http://platform.tumblr.com/v1/share.js'); }); }

LEGO Star Wars Cosplay — LEGO Boba Fett

How about that for a geek triumvi­rate head­line? Yes this is a cosplay of the LEGO Star Wars minifigure of the galaxy's least compe­tent bounty hunter Boba Fett as lovingly created by CGS1 for his son. Even I think it's really cool and I think Boba Fett is the third lamest char­acter in Star Wars. It's prob­ably the most convincing LEGO … Read More…

LEGO Star Wars — Darth Malgus Lands On Hoth

Christoffer Östberg or East Moun­tain as he goes by on Flickr produces LEGO imagery that can only be described as beau­tiful. They're also wonder­fully geeky and Star Wars related which is a bonus. It's the atten­tion to detail which puts these photographs over the top though. Sure they're using some good LEGO Star Wars models, but look … Read More…

LEGO Sci-Fi — The Settlement on Epherna 1

Here's a creative use of the micro-scale building style to present a whole city (and not just any city but a futur­istic space port) in a tiny space. Tim Clark has done some great work with this build giving a real sense of a big, busy city complete with build­ings and a biodome. And then he's topped it off with a couple of micro-scale … Read More…

LEGO Princess Bride — The Final Duel

Inigo Montoya: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. Count Rugen: Stop saying that! A movie classic skill­fully recre­ated by a group of nine LEGO builders as part of a 14 vignette collab­o­ra­tion depicting scenes from The Princess Bride. This one is called The Final Duel and of course shows us … Read More…

LEGO Superheroes — Green Arrow

Obvi­ously LEGO have been selling a variety of super­hero sets for some time now under license from both DC Comics and Marvel Comics. But this build by Nicolas Picot is some­thing very different and oh so impres­sive. For a start it's about 20 inches in height and if that's not enough there are 44 points of artic­u­la­tion which … Read More…
